Dr. Brodt is originally from Long Island, New York. He graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 2005 with a science business major. His love for travel and animals took him to St. George University in Grenada for his DVM. After completing veterinary school, Dr. Brodt moved with his wife, who is a Colorado native, to Denver in 2011. He worked in private practice with small animals for the next four years until he moved his wife and 2 boys 8,000 miles away to Koror, Palau to become the country's only veterinarian. In Palau, Dr. Brodt worked on a multitude of domestic and wild patients, but still made time to scuba dive, travel around Asia and spend time with his family on the beach.
